Players will be able to swim, dive and explore the water in Cyberpunk 2077 and there is some content based in the water but don't expect a water exploration game, Senior Level Designer Miles Tost confirmed in latest podcast.
CD Projekt Red's Miles Tost recently talked about Cyberpunk 2077 in Cyberpunk 2077 Community Podcast where he shared some interesting new details about the exploration in the game. Tost said that exploration in Cyberpunk 2077 will be a highly rewarding experience since there are surprises and things to see behind every corner.
When asked about the underground and water exploration, Tost gave an interesting answer. He made it clear that Cyberpunk 2077 is not a water exploration game but will have some secrets underwater, which players will get to uncover by swimming and diving. Here is the transcript of the interesting bit:
I will say this, Cyberpunk 2077 is not a water exploration game. We basically have it [water] there because Night City is located on a coast. We have swimming mostly because we want to give you the freedom to explore. So yeah, you can swim and dive.
There's some content [under water] but [water] is not where we focused our content, absolutely not.

Miles also confirmed that all your cyberware will be waterproof so if you planned to install a ton of gadgets on your character, fear not, you won't get electrocuted when you get in contact with water.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 19, 2020.
